Yesterday we enjoyed some lovely weather and it actually kept colder than expected (a good thing).

Today there's a bit of a southerly wind coming in and so there's a worry it will warm up more than we'd like. From early on the sun is out and it's another fine morning in the region. Let's see how things progress during the day.

Let's take a look at the forecast... snow should be falling once again tomorrow (maybe not from the start of the day) and then through Sunday though temperatures will probably be on the relatively mild side - not mid-winter bitterly cold. There's more regular snow expected through to mid-week as well, so hopefully we'll be seeing some regular fresh snow over the coming days.
